From the Author
Eli and I wrote Eli, the boy who hated to write to share easy-to-use strategies to help students who experience the frustrating problem of dysgraphia. The strategies suggested are designed to be fun, practical, and easy to implement and are appropriate for regular education or special education teachers as well as parents. The prime focus of the book is to also share the very real frustrations that these students experience, to show other students that they are not alone, to explain the issue to parents and teachers, and to present suggestions for strategies.

Here are other superb books for children and teens with learning disabilities. For children who are not being read to, it’s important that parents read the book also and start an ongoing conversation.
Disability awareness and acceptance are common traits of successful students and adults with LD.
Along with therapists and SPED teachers, parents play a critical role in helping children understand and cope with their disabilities. Be sure to recommend these resources to your friends and your child’s teachers.

These books promote “growth mindset”—the belief that intelligence increases with effort. Research has found that students with this view have higher achievement than those who believe that intelligence is a fixed quantity (determined at birth).
